RFMD DEBUTS RFFC0085 FREQUENCY CONVERTER IC.
The RFFC0085, which consists of an input AGC amplifier, mixer and a video/AGC amplifier, delivers optimum performance with low power consumption and low distortion. The RFFC0085 delivers a >50% reduction in DC power dissipation and a 55% or greater reduction in printed circuit board assembly (PCBA) area, versus competitive solutions. With +3.3VDC, it operates in its market segment's smallest package (3x3 mm QFN-16) with higher conversion gain and lower DC power dissipation than +5VDC tuners. The frequency converter's small footprint, combined with its industry-lowest external component count, make the RFFC0085 the ideal OOB receive circuit solution for space-constrained applications. This enables the cost-effective size reduction of consumer premises equipment (CPE), such as super-thin flat panel HDTVs and PCs.
The RFFC0085 is shipping in volume today and samples are available for immediate delivery.
RFMD is exhibiting at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo '09, October 28-30, in Denver, CO.
